Question about Toshiba TLP S30 Multimedia Projector

How do I take a projector apart

I have a two projectors that the housing where the lamp gets plugged in broke. I want to see if I can fix it. I've got all the screws out of it (I think) and did know how to open the case. I found 3 screws and a foot that screwed in. I thought it should snap open but it's not opening.

  • Secure the lamp cover and the air filter cover of the projector body if the projector does not power on. Ensure that the power cable is firmly connected to the projector and an active power plug. If the projector was turned off and then on quickly--let it sit for 90 seconds before trying to turn it on.

    Replace the projection lamp if the projector will not power on or if the lamp indicator is flashing. Turn off the projector and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Locate the lamp cover and remove or loosen the lamp cover with a screwdriver. Carefully remove the projection lamp from the projector housing using the handle, if available.

  • 3
    Place the new projection lamp into the projector housing and secure it to the projector. Replace the lamp cover and reset the lamp timer. Power on the projector to ensure the new lamp is working correctly.

  • 4
    Remove the projector from the enclosed area to allow air circulation if it constantly overheats. Place the projector into an open area and make sure there is no blockage for the ventilation holes. Unplug the projector for at least 45 minutes to allow it to soft reset.

  • 5
    Clean the air filter to allow the projector better air circulation. Turn off the projector and unplug it from the outlet. Remove the air filter cover and use a vacuum to remove dust from the area. If the filter is unable to be cleaned correctly or is damaged, then replace it. Pull the air filter from the projector and place the new one in the now empty slot. Close and secure the air filter cover.

I have a Sanyo plc-xt25 LCD Projector and when I plug my ac cord in, the fans turn on but no lamp comes on. I changed the lamp and still no picture. What do I do?


Every projector lamp is equipped with ballast. The problem area is ballast. Either the ballast is not getting DC supply or the lamp turn ON signal from the projector main board or the ballast is faulty. Remove the lamp. Connect the projector to the mains supply. Check the voltage at the lamp connector inside the projector without turning it ON. It should be around 65 volts A/C. (Warning: Multimeter will get damaged if the projector power is turned ON due to generation of high voltage) If you find this 65 volts then it confirms that it has DC supply & the ballast is functioning. The ballast receives the the turn ON signal from microcontroller through opto-coupler on the ballast. The ballast opto-coupler can be checked by providing external 5V DC supply between pin 3 (+ve) & 4 (-ve) in turn switches ON the lamp. If this works then there is no problem with your lamp & ballast. The problem lies with the main board. If this does not solve your problem then give me the feedback.

It is not a common problem. Ballasts rarely need repairs. Have you reset the lamp hours to zero after installing new bulb? If, yes to confirm about ballast please ask the TV repair shop man whether previously he had repaired any DLP projector. There is lot of difference in technology of DLP projector & TV (except DLP Projection TV). The problem could be in the projector main board. The lamp lights after getting Lamp ON signal from the projector main board. As the lamp ignites the ballast sends the signal of Lamp Lit. If the projector board senses that any blower/exhaust fan or colour wheel is not running then it will send a signal to Switch OFF the lamp. If you are tech-savvy then do as follows to check about lamp & ballast. Remove 5 pin connector from the projector. Connect projector to mains supply. Get a 5V DC power supply. Connect +ve to pin 3 & -ve to pin 4 of the ballast connector from this supply. The lamp should light. If it does not light then there is problem in the ballast (if the lamp is new). To give a chance you can check it for your lamp which lasted 20 minutes. Generally ballasts are made by OSRAM. You can get the ballast from OSRAM dealer. You will need the part number for that. Take out the ballast, it is there on it.

HD70 DLP Projector: The projector is used and about a year old. It cur...


Did this start occurring after you replaced the lamp?

The reason I ask is I had the same issue after changing the lamp and it was caused because when I took out the old lamp I noticed dust in the lamp housing which I attempted to blow away.

This caused the problem because some dust got further into the projector, specifically around the color wheel. I sorted it out by taking the projector apart following the instructions here:

http://tantht.blogspot.com/2009/02/how-to-remove-dust-blobs-from-optoma.html

(note my HD70 was out of warranty, if yours is not, I would recommend contacting Optoma to get it fixed).

Follow the above instructions to step 14 and then locate the color wheel which is at the front of the projector behind a dark gray, plastic type square shaped cover.

You have to be very careful here, but remove the color wheel (there is one screw holding it in place) - note it

Replace bulb in housing for Infocus IN24.. i want instructions how to remove old bulb from housing.


1 Turn off the projector and unplug the power cord. 2 Wait 60 minutes to allow the projector to cool thoroughly. 3 Turn the projector upside down on a soft cloth so that the lamp door is facing you. 4 Slide the lamp door off. WARNING: Be extremely careful when removing the lamp housing. In the unlikely event that the bulb ruptures, small glass fragments may be generated. The lamp housing is designed to contain these fragments, but use caution when removing the lamp housing. Before replacing the lamp, clean the lamp compartment and dispose of cleaning materials. Wash hands after lamp replacement. Hg ? Lamp contains mercury. Manage in accordance with local disposal laws. 5 Detach the lamp connector from the projector by depressing the locking tab on the connector and lightly pulling it free. 6 Loosen the captive screw that attaches the lamp housing to the projector.Carefully remove the lamp housing. Dispose of the lamp in an environmentally proper manner. 7 Install the new lamp housing and tighten the screw. 8 Re-attach the lamp connector to the projector. The locking tab should engage when the connector is fully plugged in. 9 Replace the lamp door by sliding it into place. Be sure the lamp connector wires are not in the way. 10 Plug in the power cord and press the Power button to turn the projector back on. 11To reset the lamp hour timer, navigate to the Settings>Service menu and select Reset Lamp Hours.

Ballast issue on LP640


first off, many churches and schools hang their projectors from the ceiling, and the only time they take them down is when they don't work. it sounds rational, but it gets dusty up there, and without proper and relatively frequent cleaning, the dust builds up and the projector can't release the heat properly. this causes a lot of malfunctions. the ballast is only one of them.

to replace the ballast:

make sure you can get the part from infocus or an authorized service center. it's part # 525-0085-51. after you remove the cover (4 screws on the bottom. you'll need a T10 torx driver. slowly slide the top forward and lift off), gently remove the ribbon cable by sliding the cable locks (on both sides of the cable) towards the front and pulling the cable out. the ballast is at the front of the projector next to the lens and in front of the lamp. pull it out and remove the ballast from it's housing. there are 3 cables coming off- the power plug, the lamp plug, and the lamp enable plug. remove those and replace the ballast. reverse the steps to install.
